Concl. of score (autogr.): A: 1733 inchoata est Messa praesens 14 Aug: et finita cum Gratia Divina quamvis aegrotassem 23. ejusdem. (In the year 1733. The present Mass was begun on 14 August and although I was ill, [it] was finished by Divine Grace on the 23rd of the same.) Facs. of Zelenka’s note is reproduced by Stockigt in Jan Dismas Zelenka, ch. 6, Pl. 4.
In the later ‘Catalogo della Musica di Chiesa ...’ (c1784) both score and parts are listed for Missa: No: 1) Missa Purificationis (III/Z/7/12). Two sets of parts are listed for the Kyrie (‘Kyrie in duplo’).
See Zelenka-Dokumentation, 139, Nr. 61; 287, ZWV 16.
On the occasion for which this mass was composed see Horn (Hkm, 90) where it is suggested that Missa Purificationis B:V:M: was composed for the churching (Kirchgang) of Maria Josepha held on 23.8.1733 following the birth of Saxon Prince Karl (b 13.7.1733). See also Stockigt (‘After Six Weeks’, Table 10.2).
Zelenka’s mass settings from 1733, Missa Purificationis B.M.V. (ZWV 16) and Missa Eucharistica (ZWV 17), both scored with trumpets and horns, are the last solemnly-set masses to be composed by Zelenka.
Perhaps this is the mass entered into the Breitkopf non-thematic catalogue (Ostermesse 1769) on page 17 as ‘Zelencka, Joh. Dism. Comp. Reg. Pol. El. Sax. Cap. Mag. Missa Kyrie cum Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Osanna, & Agnus à [illegible] Clar. Tymp. 2 Oboi, 2 Flauti, 2 Violini, Viola, 2 Sopr. Alt. Ten. Bass e Fondamento. P. 5 thl. St. 5 thl. 8 gl.’.
Concordance: The incipit in the Catalog 1765 agrees with a Missa integra (Missae Dominicales) listing in the Osek Inventory, 1754, ‘sub littera D fol. 20r, No. 25’ in D, by Zelenka.
